Who's up for this months Make it Colourful challenge 'Texture or Patterns'?
It's so rewarding to push yourself that little bit more with your colouring simply buy adding some texture or patterns so I do hope to see you all have a go at this challenge :)
I have added texture to Summer Dreams hat by using my darkest marker in a crosshatch manner to make it look like a straw hat and by adding 'shadows' in the sand it gives the impression of a textured beach. I watched the videos Zoe created with the latest Mermaid release to learn how to do the sand, the videos are very informative and I would recommend them as a fantastic reference tool for creating any water/beach/mermaid scene. They are available with the purchase of the Beautiful Mermaid Collection.
I coloured this scene using Copic Markers - Summer Dreams - Skin - YR0000, 000, 00, E93. Hair - Y21, 23, E13, 15, 19. Dress and Ribbon - W0, 2, 4, V25, BG13, R08, YR14. Hat - W1, 3, 4, 6. Shoes - BG11, 13. The Beach - Sky - B01, 00, 000. Water - B16, 14, 12. Shell - W1, 2, 4. SeaStar - YR - 000, 00. Sand - E50, 51, 53, 55. Island - YG61, 63. Trees - E23, YG25, 17. Shadows - BV20 W4.
